Editor’s note: The Purcell Register has introduced a feature in which civic leaders and others will answer five questions. The following were answered by Kem Scully, CEO/CNO at Purcell Municipal Hospital.
Q: Is being a hospital administrator what you expected?
A: Looking back, I worked for some pretty awesome Hospital Administrators who mentored me for the position long before I became an Administrator. I learned to expect the unexpected. So with that I still believe God has placed me right where He wants me to be.
Q: Do you miss nursing?
A: Since my title is CEO/CNO, as Chief Nursing Officer I am still involved in nursing. Perhaps a different role, but I am still close to the bedside and close to those performing at the bedside. I consider it a blessing to be able to do both roles.
Q: What is the best part of your job?
A: Knowing that each day we make a difference.
Q: What is the most challenging part of your job?
A: Balancing the financial aspects of healthcare.
Q: What hobby or hobbies do you enjoy?
A: We have horses and cattle, dogs and chickens at home. I enjoy spending time outside.
